This rock group out of California (formed in SF but currently based in LA) has been on the scene since 1997 and they have been recognized by various names during this time. Originally known as Orinoka Crash Suite, they changed to OCS in 2003, then to Orange County Sound, and then Oh Sees and Thee Oh Sees. The current lineup consists of John Dwyer (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Tim Hellman (bass), Dan Rincon (drums), Paul Quattrone (drums), and Tomas Dolas (keyboards). There has been a lot of turnover, with many members coming in and out. Apart from Dwyer, the members of the group joined between 2014 and 2018.
They have released a lot of music under a lot of different names, but their discography consists of 20 albums from 2003 to present. Initially formed as a creative outlet and side project for Dwyer, the group has made an incredible transformation into a legitimate and influential collective. The group was quickly gaining a loyal and large fan base, and they toured extensively during the mid-late 2000’s. This was before announcing a short-lived hiatus in 2013, quickly reassuring their fans in 2014 with their next release. Their most recent release, titled The 12” Synth, included two 20-minute tracks. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see the incredible garage/psychedelic/punk rockers in action! The show is at 8:30.
